Canary Islands gastronomy: taste typical Canarian food
Typical Canarian food departs from Spanish gastronomy, due to its cultural roots and temperatures that are very different from those of the Peninsula. The dishes of the Canarian gastronomy are marked by strong and powerful flavors of Latin American and African origin, and to a large extent, take reference from Venezuelan gastronomy, due to the great migration that took place.
These two restaurants, both located in the north of the island, specifically in La Perdoma, are dedicated to highlighting typical Canarian food, with a very local, home-made concept, beautiful presentations and a very familiar atmosphere.

“Bodegón el Caserío” is an excellent place, decorated in the Canarian style, where you can taste good Canarian cuisine and authentic homemade food. This restaurant has several dining rooms and reserved for groups or couples. It also has a large terrace with views towards the summits and vineyards of the beautiful La Orotava Valley. In addition, Carmen, the chef, is a specialist in typical Canarian cauldron food and a wonderful wood-burning grill.
This still life has a well-kept secret gastronomic recipe: positive reviews from diners ensure that the best sirloin steaks in Tenerife are found there. Another gastronomic secret of this Still Life is the Octopus sauteed with Sweet Potato, a special dish unique and exclusive to the Caserío. They will also leave you breathless with their grilled meats.
